Full lips look sensual, seductive and convey youthfulness. However, with age, the muscles around the mouth become thinner and the production of collagen and elastin, the proteins responsible for the skin's elasticity, slows down.
Full, naturally modelled lips
The Upper lip wrinkle treatment with long-lasting hyaluronic acid is, in the hands of an experienced professional, one of the best methods to model the lips and effectively enlarge them.
You can achieve the best results if you start with a professional treatment at the first signs of wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid is ideally suited as a filler, as it is tolerated without any problems due to its natural nature. In our surgeries in 1180 Vienna and in Tulln you can first discuss your wishes and ideas with us in a pleasant atmosphere and subsequently expect an optimal result.
What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid (glycosaminoglycan) is basically a clear, sticky gel-like substance that has the special ability to bind moisture. Chemically, it is a complex sugar molecule chain that can bind water up to a thousand times its weight along its entire length. Hyaluronic acid therefore acts like a sponge that absorbs large amounts of water. Hyaluron is produced naturally by our body and serves to keep our skin soft and supple. It is present in large quantities in our connective tissue and skin. However, from the age of 25, the skin's own production of hyaluronic acid begins to decline, the skin becomes drier and loses volume as we age. Gradually, the first fine lines and wrinkles appear. Eventually, the muscles around the mouth become thinner and the wrinkles around the mouth become more pronounced.
In the field of beauty medicine, hyaluronic acid is mainly used as a dermal filler.
Injecting lips with hyaluron
One of the most popular aesthetic treatments is lip injections with hyaluronic acid. This minimally invasive method can help to enlarge the lips and give them a full, defined lip shape. Hyaluronic acid is particularly known for its high moisturising effect and ability to optimally blend into the infiltration site.
In order to achieve a harmonious mouth appearance, the exact dosage of the hyaluronic acid used is of fundamental importance. That is why it is important to have any kind of aesthetic treatment performed only by an experienced specialist you trust.
The advantages of hyaluronic injections:
- natural looking result
- the volume of the lips is increased
- Defines clear contours
- Asymmetries can be corrected
- Gentle and low-risk compared to other methods
- the lips get new resilience and elasticity
- the facial features and facial expressions remain unchanged
- Reduction of wrinkles of the upper lip
What is the procedure for lip injections ?
Wrinkles on the upper and lower lip (perioral wrinkles) can be injected, filled and immediately smoothed with the help of hyaluronic acid. It can also be used to define and shape the so-called 'cupid's bow', the heart-shaped arch in the middle of the upper lip. Before the first stitch, an icing cream is applied to the lips to guarantee a painless treatment.
Side effects or risks are low when treated by an experienced doctor. Redness or swelling may occur for 1-2 days. The result lasts up to ten months.

Can hyaluronic acid be taken as a food supplement?
More and more companies offer special food supplements with hyaluronic acid and collagen hydrolysate to counteract the loss of skin moisture.
Vitamins A and C, zinc, manganese, copper, biotin and B vitamins also contribute to skin health. To achieve success, however, you have to take such products for months.
Moss ointment as support
Moss is known for its large moisture storage capacity.
You can apply a small amount of moss ointment on your lips to support moisture balance.
Drink enough water
Drink about 2 litres of water or unsweetened tea daily for optimal hydration.
A daily facial muscle workout also tightens the tissue around the lips.
